Don't eat plastic then. Sheesh.

People fap to sea turtles now?

See - all we need are more turtles and we can get it all cleaned up and then have some soup.

Heidi Montag... now THERE's a name that completely fell off the map in the past 8 months. It took me a second to recall who that was.

Well at least someone is cleaning our oceans

FTFA: Ferris said she was aware of 40 to 50 turtles suffering from plastic ingestion each year, but this was "the worst case we've seen".

Is it unreasonable to feel intensely ashamed when I hear stuff like this?

deep fry the turtles at the state fair and the plastic isn't dangerous.

He also had a bigger brain; this is not news. Now, the huge number of turtles killed at this time of year by careless and reckless driver, that is news. Or at least worth more discussion than Heidi Montag, cum dumpster.

Are you responsible with your trash? Did you knowingly put plastic in the ocean? Ah, hell with it... Yes, YOU killed this turtle and his whole family.

Now, go sit in the corner and think about what you've done!

I'm glad these turtles are scooping all the junk out of the ocean for us, keeping it in a neatly wrapped package that way.

They are dying to save the planet. Way to go, guys!!

/does not feel bad about throwing plastic overboard now.

Great, I suppose now Michelle Obama is going to try to regulate what sea turtles eat too.

Keep your grubby laws off my take-out menu.

She said the turtle's digestive system became impacted with material it couldn't digest and the animal slowly starved.
:(
That's really sad. Isn't there recycle centers for plastic? Don't they sift through the garbage and mechanically remove the metals, plastics..etc?

My son is 1, by the time he graduates high school we will be pushing 9 billion people on the planet. Forget Global Warming, it won't be near the factor that 9-10 billion people will be.

The great Pacific Garbage Patch and most other places you find garbage in the ocean is made up of things that didn't go to a recycle center. That's the stuff that people threw out of their car windows or discarded on the sidewalk and it got swept up in run off. That's the stuff that someone in Indonesia dumped into the lagoon because they either don't know better or don't care.

CSS: In high school my friend was living in Jordon and volunteered for a massive clean up of a beach (I don't know the region so no idea what body of water this may have been). So on just day one they dragged surf and surfaced something like 1/2 a ton of garbage. As the team was getting ready to pack up for the day he actually saw this family sitting on the beach and the father unwrapped an ice cream and threw the plastic wrapper into the water. My friend, according to his sister, was so incensed that he went up to that guy and started yelling at him, "Why would you throw that in there? Haven't you been seeing us pulling all this trash out of your waters? Why would you do that!?"

The guy just shrugged "it's just one little piece. What's the big deal?" Friend then went into lecture mode in telling him that all the garbage in the ocean was once just 'one little piece'. The guy just nodded along "huh, didn't think of it that way before..." but it's likely he wouldn't have changed his habits. However, stuff like this is really frustrating to people who are trying to do the work of cleaning up after others.

Not unless you were molested with a turtle and forced to eat plastic when you were young.

That's funny in a sick, tired, sad way. Oh and the answer? it's "no".
Makes me wanna puke.
Damn Rachel Carson. She quit just when we needed her the most. And by most I mean everyday.

That is one woman that don't feel a single ounce of pity for. She was sooo hot before the surgeries (dumber than potatoes sure, but hot as hell). Now she's dumb as potatoes and looks worse than a barbie doll.

Favorite line from her interview:

HM: "I'm not like one of those addicted women who go out and have like 10 plastic surgeries!"
Interviewer: "...You did have 10 plastic surgeries..."

Poor sumbiatches mistake floating plastic bags for jellyfish, their preferred food, and monofilament for tentacles of the same. They eat, they get impacted, they starve, die and sink, get scavenged, the crap gets released back into the water, and it all starts again. Sometimes I think people just suck.

But all that crap about the oceans being polluted is just liberal propaganda!

Who do you think caused it?

"Save the trees!" in the 80's has been an environmental catastrophe.

I'm loling all over the place, thanks Fark! This was otherwise heartbreaking. Heidi Montag... LMAO Here is some better coverage for those genuinely interested http://www.abc.net.au/local/videos/2011/06/30/3257970.htm?site=northcoast.

I've noticed that if you throw something in water like a lake or an ocean that the next day its gone, so somehow it takes it away and filters it through and it just cleans it up like a garbage compactor or whatever, it's not really littering if you ask me.

You're not supposed to mention this.....the problem that underlies all the others. But doing something positive about it would interfere with freedom to breed (a right guaranteed by the UN Charter). Fail to control population = all the other problems just get worse as it increases. Reduce population significantly = other problems are reduced commensurately.

I had no idea who it was, so I did a Google search; my wife walked in and, well, um, EDUCATIONAL PURPOSES!
